QUOTE OF THE DAY
Black History Month

Kevin Hart, born July 6, 1979, is an American comedian born and raised in Philadelphia, PA. He got his start at the Laff House – longtime locals might be familiar! Most people know Hart is funny, but did you also know he’s a philanthropist? When the Philadelphia city school district closed 24 schools and cut thousands of employees, Hart donated a quarter million dollars to get new computers for his alma mater district.

You definitely want your kids to understand their heritage, but I don’t want my kids to just focus on being black. They are people. I don’t want them to judge other people or to be judged. I want them to be good people, so good people will treat them accordingly. I preach that to my kids and everything else falls into place.” – Kevin Hart
